We invite you to learn more about Mannheim Business School and our two part-time Executive MBA programs, the Mannheim Executive MBA and the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA.

Mannheim Business School faculty and staff will provide you with detailed information on the unique characteristics of our school and the Executive MBA journey. You will also have the opportunity to hear a startup success story and ask alumni about their experiences.

Quick check: The average postgraduate work experience in our Executive MBA classes is around 15 years. You can apply for our Executive MBA programs with at least a minimum of 8 years of postgraduate work experience (fulfilled at the time of program start). Since in our Executive MBA programs regular attendance at courses is mandatory (Mannheim Executive MBA: twice a month in Mannheim; ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA: every six to eight weeks in Mannheim or Paris), our programs are aimed at participants living within commuting distance in Germany or Central Europe.
